1. What cookies are and what categories of cookies are used on this Site
Cookies are small text strings that the visited site sends to the user’s terminal (e.g. computer, smartphone, tablet), where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same site at the next visit of the same user.
The cookies used on this Site may be distinguished by the following criteria:

(i) session cookies: these cookies store the necessary information during the browsing session and are deleted immediately after the session expires, i.e. when the browser is closed;
